Athens is a Pandora box which has some of the most unique Heritage Sights to offer. It offers glimpses of some of the oldest Empires and civilisations of the world. With a long list to what to do and what to see, here’s a quick overview of what you have waiting for you in Athens.

The Acropolis: Situated on a hilltop, the Acropolis was the ancient city’s centre with its temple Parthenon dating back to 447 BC to 338 BC. The temple’s stunning sculptural details and rows of Doric columns fascinate every tourist. Among the ruins is also a complex of ancient sanctuaries called Erechtheion, built between 421 BC and 395 BC. To add to this marvel is the Acropolis Museum situated below the hilltop.

Byzantine Museum: Located in a 19th-century palace, the museum offers a peek into the Byzantine period. The museum also holds artefacts from early Christian and post-byzantine periods. The tally of scriptures, icons, textiles, paintings, and mosaics runs over 25,000.

Agora: Being the ruins of a marketplace, Agora offers a look into the everyday life of ancient Athens. The north wall of the Acropolis provides a great view of the site which held theatre performances and athletic events as well. It also holds the 18-metre long seat of the Archon Basileus, Royal Stoa. Also located nearby is the Temple of Hephaistos, a 5th century BC Doric temple.

Olympieion: Dedicated to Zeus, the God of the sky, Olympieion was ancient Greece’s largest temple. With 15 enormous marble columns still standing today (and another lying on the ground), it forces a tourist to imagine the temple in all its glory back in the day – with over a hundred of such columns.
